Sony A6300 vs Sony A6400
In the DxOMark test , which focuses mainly on the camera matrix, the Sony A6400 scored 83 points . This makes it comparable to many more expensive cameras with APS-C matrices. At the same time, the Sony A6300, three years older, obtained 85 points in the same test. The camera has a slightly narrower dynamic range and depth of color. All differences, however, are minimal.Here's what experts from DxOMark wrote in their test:
Anyone who compares the Sony A6300 and A6400 will find the results intriguing. Although both models have a similar matrix resolution (number of pixels) and the overall results are very similar, the measurements are not identical. Despite the slightly higher noise level compared to the A6300, the new A6400 sensor works well, combining a wide dynamic range with a high range and excellent performance in low light. Although it affects directly the depth of color, the A6400 is able to provide a unique image. Combining these possibilities with the new AF system, serial photos of 11 fps and a relatively affordable price, we get a very tempting camera for sports photographers with a limited budget.
It can be seen that the camera has been positively evaluated, but it does not change the fact that, in terms of the quality of the photos, there is no breakthrough in relation to the previous model. The changes concern the possibilities themselves – faster serial mode, much better autofocus, a touch screen deflected 180 degrees. At the same time in terms of photos already worn Sony A6300 still falls out well . This is a very successful model, which after many years can really a lot, so you can still consider buying it. Especially that the A6300 prices – both used and new – are very tempting.
